Our meal was very average, we didn't even finish it. We were told that it wasn't very good before we went there but wanted to experience it and make our own opinion. next time we will listen to the locals.

What a great find. Awesome atmosphere, excellent entertainment and our food was also superb. All six of us enjoyed our meals......our only disappointment was the lack of banana's so we had to change our desserts but no drama the alternatives were delicious. The staff were very friendly.

Just dropped in for a beer, luckily it was happy hour, so Tusker was 300 vt. Right on the waterfront, with boats tied along the wharf, looking out over IRIKI Island.very pleasant, a bit rustic but that just added to the good feel of the bar/restaurant

Waterfront Bar and Grill provides a variety of food options on their menu and from eating there many of times over the past five years, they never disappoint. Service is wonderful and the food is good quality. Lovely location sitting right on harbour overlooking Iririki Island. The food is a little bit more pricey than other restaurant in Port Vila...
